Yes, We can All Pretend to be Hot Tennis Players7.5.09
In honor of the amazing Roger Federer (I just call him “Rog”) and his win at Wimbledon against Andy Roddick, we’d like to discuss Roger’s signature fashion item, the terry headband. I honestly think that Roddick’s fashion choice at Wimbledon played a part in his loss, but, hey, that’s just me. Roddick’s backwards “bro” cap did nothing to improve his chances of winning, while Rog’s headband–stylish AND practical–helped give him the athletic and style edge he needed.
At the post-match ceremony, Andy could’ve stepped it up, but no. He let Rog outshine him AGAIN in a white zip up jacket with gold accents. Could Rog be heading straight to P. Diddy’s yacht in St. Tropez? In that fabulous initial jacket, HELL, YES!
Now that you’re sufficiently convinced on the necessity of headband, you can run your asses over to American Apparel and get yours, too! If you really want to go crazy, consider adding the matching terry wristband, but don’t blame us if people start chasing you down the street to beat you with tennis rackets to steal them the way Nike Air Jordans are stolen in the ghetto.

Psha. I don’t have to pretend…
I DO however need to pretend that I have 15 Grand Slam titles. At least I look hot doing that.
Good fashion and success in sports go hand in hand. Take Michael Jordan and the baggy shorts, Lance Armstrong and his signature gold necklace, Tiger Woods and his well cut Nike ensemble with solid colors vs. the staid old plaid. There is most certainly a corollary between good fashion sense and a “W” in the game.

I Love it! Lets not forget to mention the benefits of the headband over the hat to the hair. I mean Rogs’ hair says it all! There is no telling what is going on under that hat on Andys head. Rog knows what he is doing….and does it well!
